rolled by opponents. the problem of chuck hagel with support in the foreign policy community is shot at from the left and the right. >> i want to put it to you, both. is this the pattern where the trial balloons are getting defeated? first we have susan rice and that was arduous. until she took her name out of contention whatsoever. and now we see chuck hagel kind of going through the same thing on the onset. >> i agree with andrea's analysis. obama now is in a bad position if he does put forth hagel's name and a fight on the hands and then ask why bother? find someone else. >> bob, is that the same assessment you would give or does the president need to say, you know what? if this is the person that i want this is the person that i've got to go for and let the chips fall where they may? >> i think a big picture is president obama wants to lower the temperature in washington and why susan rice's names is withdrawn. that would have been a fight. i don't think he's seeking needless points and vowed to change washington. that didn't happen in the first term and tired of the showdowns an

you about a couple of foreign policy notes. after the attack in benghazi, is there a need for more accountability so this doesn't happen again? and do you know who was behind the attack at this point? >> two points. number one, i think that tom pickering and mike mullen who headed up the review board did a very thorough job in identifying what were some severe problems in diplomatic security. and they provided us with a series of recommendations. many of them were already starting to be implemented. secretary clinton has indicated that she is going to implement all of them. what i've -- my message to the state department's been very simple. and that is, we're going to solve this. we're not going to be defensive about it. we're not going to pretend that this was not a problem. this was a huge problem. and we're going to implement every single recommendation that's been put forward. some individuals have been held accountable inside of the state department. and what i've said is that we are going to fix this to make sure that this does not happen again. because these are folks that i
